If you’re a vacation rental host, you’re probably aware of the new enhanced cleaning protocol Airbnb released in early June. Airbnb broke down its protocol into five steps:
The five steps involve safety measures such as wearing proper protective equipment, washing all the linens and avoiding shaking dirty linens, setting out cleaning supplies for guests, and more. This new protocol was introduced to help keep you and your guests safe as we navigate the global pandemic and beyond. While they claim to provide these guidelines to empower hosts, the extensive instructions can be a lot to manage.
Here is how you can commit to higher standards of cleaning with the help of neu:
To prepare for safer cleans, you have to gather the right cleaning supplies. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and leading experts recommend using disinfectant and sanitizer solutions that are registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). With neu, this step is already taken care of as cleaners come prepared with Ecolab EPA-registered cleaning supplies, toiletries, paper products, and more. Protective equipment such as disposable gloves and masks are also available with neu.
Cleaning means you remove germs and dirt from hard and soft surfaces in your space. Airbnb’s new enhanced protocol prescribes hosts to not only wash all linens at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer, they also say not to shake dirty linens to avoid spreading germs. Besides the usual cleaning of dust and debris, a major perk of using neu to handle your cleans is our linen service: we provide clean linens and launder the dirty to hospital standards to provide your guests with the quality they deserve.
Sanitizing with neu is easy because we have already introduced all the proper chemical products to reduce the number of germs and bacteria in your home. It’s important to sanitize all high-touch areas such as doorknobs, light switches, and cabinets. EPA registered and green certified products like the Ecolab Peroxide Multi-Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant and the Acid Bathroom Cleaner are just a couple of the tools we use at neu to kill 99.999% of germs and novel viruses (including SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19) in as fast as 45 seconds.
To ensure that each room is getting properly tended to, the cleaners at neu follow a checklist as they clean. We also double-check that all high-touch surfaces were sanitized and note any items that need to be replaced, refilled, or restocked.
After we clean and sanitize, we do the finishing touches in your space by visually assessing each room to ensure the stage is set for the next guest. We check to make sure everything is up to standard for your next guest. We also have single-serve amenities for your guest to use and set out cleaning supplies to empower them such as hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, extra hand soap, and more.
